Women, THIS Is Why Men Seem So Complicated [By: Garrett Fraser]

Once again, I must say THANK YOU to everyone who has hit me up about the guest contributor spots and I have not been able to comb through all the emails, but I will get to ALL of them by Saturday for sure. Here is ANOTHER guest piece that I thought was a great look at an issue I STILL hear women complain about with men. Read on ladies and gentlemen…

Over the last few months I’ve been asked by many women “Why are men so damn complicated?” Well here’s the answer: Women complicate them!

Men can easily be misconstrued and come off as being complicated because too often women are complicating things. For the most part guys are generally simple…if you want to find out an answer to a question, the easiest and quickest way is to ask a direct question and demand a direct answer. So why the hell do you feel the need to be like a Brazilian soccer team and make ridiculous plays that involves every player before you go for the goal? (so to speak)

YES that actually IS Brazil's female soccer team (Stop hating!)

As a man who has been victim to one of those plays time and time again, it’s frustrating as hell to know that my response really won’t matter. That’s because no matter the answer we give or how we get to the answer it will never be satisfactory and here’s why:

Women over think EVERYTHING! I’ve seen countless women take the most simplest of responses and explore every other meaning that they think it could possibly mean. Enter the Brazilian soccer team.

Women need to learn to listen and interpret what he’s saying instead of trying to always put words into his mouth. Enter all other countries who want to be like the Brazilian team.

Women can make even the simplest of things seem THIS complicated

The sad part is that as an end result of those two trains of thoughts, women expect more and less from their men. It’s pretty safe to say that women for the most part know their men but they are seemingly never content with them, even when they know how they are and what their habits are. So why expect more than what they can do?

So my question is this Women, if you know how your man is why do you expect more and then get frustrated when things are not going the way you think they should be?
